Shoshone River Access Closed...(?)
One of the pipes leading to the Shoshone power plant ruptured yesterday and made a big mess. It was actually quite spectacular. There was water flying up about 100' in to the air above the power plant. There was about 7-10 feet of water left in the plant and the Glenwood paper reports that there was still water seeping out of the retaining wall. The long and short of it (last I heard) is that access to the river is closed due to mud, debris and damage. There is aslo a concern about debris in the river. I've heard that Grizzly Creek is also closed. Check in before you go down it would suck to sit in all that traffic for nothing. If anyone down that way knows different, please post.
